Thank you for your continued support. About KTC JaxKarma Thegsum Chöling Jacksonville KTCJax is a Tibetan Buddhist Practice Center of the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddha Dharma. The Kagyu lineage is one of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism & is often called “The Whispered Lineage” because its highest teachings are still passed in an unbroken line from teacher to student since the days of the Buddha. Founded in June of 1986, we’re also an affiliate Center of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, the North American seat of His Holiness the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje. The Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, Abbot of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra monastery in Woodstock, New York, guides our Center.Karma Thegsum Chöling Jacksonville1258 South McDuff Avenue • Jacksonville, Florida 32205 (904) 357-0663 Visit us at http://ktcjax.org and http://facebook.com/ktcjax
